Last night was my first full night of work on my unit.  I was with a precepting nurse (basically a "trainer") who was fantastic, and we had one crazy evening.  It seemed like it was non-stop action.  Thirteen hours on my feet and I felt like I needed someone to wheel me out to my car afterwards.  
I was actually scheduled to work another 12-hour shift today, but there was a scheduling conflict, so I got the day off and have to come in Saturday.  Blech. 
I basically just "shadowed" my preceptor and didn't do a whole lot of nursing, but I did get an IV in a not-so-great vein on my first try, so that made me feel pretty good.  

I am a little peeved because I ordered some scrubs online, and thought they would be here last week (in plenty of time!).  Well, lo-and-behold, I got an email from the company stating that every single thing I ordered, except one pair of pants, is on backorder for 2-3 weeks. When I was ordering I made sure to only pick styles that stated that they were "in stock", so I am not happy.  I had to stop at a uniform store and spend over $120 to get some scrubs to tide me over until the others arrive.  The only upside is that now I have plenty of extras in case of a rip or tear or if I am having a rough laundry week. 

Forgive me if I don't post for another few days.  I'm still trying to adjust to this wacky schedule and I can't seem to get used to it.  I'm sure by the time I'm supposed to change to night shift (in a week and a half) I'll finally be used to getting up so early.  
Thanks for sticking this out with me!
